Birds from Siem Reap, Cambodia, Nov. 2019 (Part II)

Hi, continuing from the previous thread, I took these in or around Siem Reap between the 24th and 29th of November, 2019.

My thoughts:

1 & 2: juvenile and adult Scaly-breasted Munia (Nutmeg Mannikin)?
3 & 4: adult and juvenile Zebra Dove?
5: surely Alexandrine Parakeet?

What do you think?

Thanks in advance,
Howard

All look good to me, though I can't confirm for sure that the juv munia is Scaly-breasted.

Could be Chestnut? It lacks the prominent gape flanges of Scaly-breasted, although that might be due to the age of the bird.

It looks like the juv munia may have the first adult feathers appearing just under the bill. To me these look like they are dark brown, which would perhaps favour Scaly-breasted over Chestnut. But maybe I'm just trying to hard to put a name to it and looking for features that aren't there.

Juv munias can be tough if there aren't adults nearby. Was it associating with the adult in photo #2?

I'd also lean toward juvenile Scaly-breasted over juv Chestnut. In my experience Chestnut munia juv can often look kind of patchy and the breast tends to be much lighter, whereas Scaly breasted are more even colored over all.

My photo of juv Scaly-breasted: https://photos.app.goo.gl/kXEVpx5Xp98G3NAq9

Very poor photo of juv Chestnut with adults: https://photos.app.goo.gl/AZNGYw7M5hMpysrPA

All that to say, I'm not completely sure but lean toward scaly breasted.

Thanks. The adult and juvenile manias were near each other.
